BIG EDDY™ II - 1995 Edition

Designed by Russ Kommer in Fargo, North Dakota
Russ Kommer, gifted knifemaker and hunting and fishing guide, came up with the breakthrough blade grind that puts our Big Eddy™ at the head of the class. Traditionally, fillet knives have had a symmetrical grind. After many hours of filleting 40-pound Alaska Salmon with the great skill and care required, the answer for a vastly improved fillet knife came to Russ—put a hollow grind on the top side of the blade and a flat grind on the bottom.
  • Top Side Hollow Grind
  • Flat Bottom Grind Lifts the Fillet
  • Molded Glass Reinforced Nylon Sheath

Russ Kommer, gifted knifemaker and hunting and fishing guide, came up with the breakthrough blade grind that puts our Big Eddy™ at the head of the class. Traditionally, fillet knives have had a symmetrical grind. After many hours of filleting 40-pound Alaska Salmon with the great skill and care required, the answer for a vastly improved fillet knife came to Russ—put a hollow grind on the top side of the blade and a flat grind on the bottom.

After making and rigorously testing a custom version and proving how well the concept worked, Russ granted CRKT® the exclusive rights for the production models.

The larger Big Eddy II has a 9.25" Razor-Sharp 420J2 stainless steel blade that features Russ's high hollow grind on the top of the blade, which creates an air pocket to lift and "float" fillets off, while the flat taper ground side glides smoothly across the skin. Triple-Point™ Serrations help you cut through gristle, bones and fins. This knife is designed to handle the largest game fish such as salmon and halibut.

The unique Twin-Fused™ handle is a rigid, high-impact polypropylene core wrapped with a soft textured rubber grip for a firm, safe hold. Its streamlined sheath is injection-molded for long wear and stylish utility.

The polypropylene lanyard adds extra convenience. Kommer's Big Eddy II adds special ease and speed of filleting to the quality of the world's finest filleting knives—all at a remarkable price.

To say Russ is an outdoorsman is a bit of an understatement. A professional fishing and hunting guide, he started making knives when one of his clients brought him a custom knife and dressed an entire moose—without sharpening it. Since then he’s made it his duty to build the kind of tools only he would use. It just so happens his Bear Claw’s™, and Hoist’N Lok®, are the kinds other hunters use as well.
